Aviation Technology Complex on Merrill Field

If you have never visited us before, the easiest way to find us is to start from 5th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. Drive east on 5th, turn right on Airport Heights, then take another right on Merrill Field Drive. The first building you see driving onto the airfield is our building.

From the main UAA campus, the best way to reach the Aviation Technology Center is to turn onto Lake Otis Parkway from Providence Drive and drive north on Lake Otis until you reach the end of the road at Merrill Field. Turn right on Debarr Road, left on Airport Heights Drive, and left again on Merrill Field Drive.
